        [Moxon & Co., Edward- Autograph Letter Signed] To Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward

      3 pages. A fascinating and informative letter in the backdrop of the historical dispute between many key players (Moxon & Co; its acting manager and later partner, J. Bertrand Payne; the poet Alfred Tennyson; and the illustrator Gustave Dore). A complicated and intertwined series of events (beginning with Edward Moxon's death in 1958) had transpired, culminating in Payne's rise to power in the company and the resultant estrangement of Tennyson (as well as Browning and Swinburne), all factors leading to the decline and ultimate closure of the famed publisher. Signed Moxon & Co., and probably written by one of the principal partners (other than Payne, who is mentioned in the letter), to Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward, influential nonconformist, antiquarian collector, and librarian to the Queen at Windsor Castle. A letter written seemingly in response to queries concerning Gustave Dore as well as the availability and prices of some original illustrations and proofs. On Moxon's 'Dover Street Stationary,' March 6, 1867. "Dear Sir, We will send for a copy of Dore's 'Elaine' for notice in the next No. of the 'Fine Arts Quarterly Review.' Dore was quite mistaken as to the motives which led to his having a commission for the "Idylls of the King..." He adds, "Our literary partner, J. Bertrand Payne, who has studied art as applied to book illustration rather deeply, was long of opinion that the Frenchman's talents would be profitably employed in the depiction of those grandly chivalrie scenes...he discussed the subject with the Laureate & Mr. Palgrave very fully..." He goes on to explain in detail the nature and quality of Dore's illustration, adding, "These drawings are for sale & are thrice the size of the Engravings." He discusses an edition published in Paris, by Hachette et Cie and adds, "so much approved by the Emperor, that through the intervention of Lord Cowley he accepted its dedication for the editor and is about to confer upon him the baron of the region." etc., much more. Glue and mounting marks along outside edges, else very good.

        The Doomsters (Inscribed First Edition)

      Cassell & Co. / A Crime Connoisseur Book, London 1958 - A just about Fine copy of the book with the outer edge of the page block foxed, otherwise in excellent condition. In a Near Fine dust jacket with minor wear at the spine ends and a few spots of color added to the jacket. Inscribed "To Jake Zeitlin with best wishes Ken Millar (Ross Macdonald)." Jake Zeitlin operated a well respected rare book business in Los Angeles, so it's not surprising that he would have crossed paths with the author. The seventh book in the Lew Archer series, in which Ross MacDonald seems to find his true voice and style. A private detective working in Southern California, Archer works on primarily suburban crimes, as he grapples with his own splintered past and depression. In an interview with The New York Times, MacDonald muses, "The individual is the great single source of new casualties in the world. A fiction is a kind of imitation of causality. I write about new causalities and new values, seen in the mirror of justice and mercy." In "The Doomsters," MacDonald evidently risked more of himself - laying bare his own struggles with moral psychology, sociology, and the continuity of family life - to fashion a novel that remains among the finest of the Lew Archer series. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Each copy signed lower right "Carlos Rausch."---Dating from Piazzolla's time in New York ca. 1958, these works, previously presumed lost or uncompleted, are referenced in Marai Susanna Azzi and Simon Collier's Le Grand Tango: The Life and Music of Astor Piazzolla (p. 67): "Piazzolla was still casting around for solid work....An agent found him some arranging work for the singer Yolande Tornell, with a $250 advance and a fee of $2,000 for twenty arrangements. The deal fell apart; Tornell claimed to find the arrangements too complicated, though Piazzolla told Dedé that they were simple enough for [his son] Daniel to sing." "Between [Piazzolla's] upward rise culminating with the artistic success of his Octeto Buenos Aires, and the turning point marked by "Adios Nonino", the requiem to his father, who died in late 1959, there were two years of misty uncertainty, spent mainly in New York City, from February 1958 to June 1960....Piazzolla was struggling with the American dream. His recollections of it, bittersweet, hardly come up in the memoirs compiled by with Natalio Gorín. The portrait of Piazzolla's life in New York is somewhat blurry. Beyond the stories of those who knew or worked with him, his name hardly appears among press notices; even though these note some of his performances, he rarely gets a name check.... The great Piazzolla was, in fact, just another anonymous musician among the thousands who made a living in late-1950s New York, a golden age for studio work in the city. Argentinian Carlos Rausch was a pianist and copyist for hire in New York at the time, and he worked with Piazzolla oftentimes." (Fernando Ortiz de Urbina, "Piazzolla in New York (IV): Rausch on Piazzolla, 1958-1960" accessed on http://jazzontherecord.blogspot.com, Saturday, April 20, 2013)We have found performance records for the singer Yolande Tornell appearing throughout the 1950s in both Florida and New York. She apparently had a short-lived radio program "En Casa de Yolande Tornell" which was a broadcast of informal performances in her living room of "numbers ranging from the classical to the popular in six languages." Some of the present manuscripts also bear notations from various other performers, as well as a few markings evidently giving specific performance locations and dates (as noted above).Piazzolla was the greatest composer of the tango, which he transformed in the mid twentieth century, combining it with classical and jazz techniques to form the tango nuevo. The characteristic Argentinian instrumental colours, such as the use of the bandoneón, are enriched with "classical" orchestral instruments, counterpoint, chromaticism, novel instrumental forms and elements of jazz, especially jazz fugue. Piazzolla studied with Alberto Ginastera in Buenos Aires and with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, and collaborated with artists like the Chronos Quartet, Rostropovich and Milva. He is comparable in some respects to Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli and Jacques Loussier, but his contribution to the enrichment of the classical repertory sets him apart.
